I watched a bit of one of a recent USFL game - completely embarrassing. Definitely not what the USFL was in the 80s, when it was serious competitor to the NFL with guys like Steve Young, Jim Kelly, Bobby Hebert, Anthony Carter, Hershel Walker and others on their rosters.
I was gonna ask @Carolina Red how he performed for Clemson before the injury. Lot of disappointment on social media that he went undrafted given his potential.Dang, Justyn Ross got red flags from every team doctor it seems. That’s a shame; he looked every bit as impressive as Tee Higgins on the same team despite being a freshman.
He and Pickens a year later looked like AJ Green level prospects…but life is weird and the gods cruel.
Considering Travon Walker and Clelin Ferrell are pretty much polar opposites as prospects going in to the NFL this makes little sense.More of DE, but yeah it’s a reach. He was barely on the radar until his measureables came in, and was not even the most impressive Georgia defender.
I could be wrong of course, but it smacks of a Gruden-era Raiders pick.
Supposedly the condition he has - the serious bit wasn’t an injury it was just discovered after a stinger - can cause bone spurs to grow and teams are scared of him severing part his spinal cord after a heavy blow. He went to an expert doctor who was the only one that would operate on him and give him a clean bill of health but it’s such a rarity that someone would go through that that teams are worried.
Weird seeing the Seahawks so high up these lists. We're usually at the bottom after the usual "trade down a whole bunch then take someone projected in the third round in the first" routine, was nice to just make logical picks for once. I'll even forgive the obligatory high RB selection.
